This is some news you cain’t say no to! Producer Eva Price announced complete casting today for the critically-acclaimed, Tony Award-winning production of Oklahoma! The highly anticipated North American tour begins performances at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, MN on November 9, 2021, and will continue to play over 25 cities during the 2021-2022 season including stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Chicago and Nashville, with additional cities to be announced.

Oklahoma! is the quintessential and classic American musical. When the original production opened in 1943, it was a groundbreaking celebration of country and community. Soldiers returned from war and found escape and affirmation while in the audience of the first ever modern American musical. Our production specifically is built around the idea of a community coming together in shared experience,” said producer Eva Price. “Well, we’ve been through a hell of a shared experience in our country over the last 18 months, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to gather-safely-with audiences in theatres across America to appreciate this story anew.”

The cast also includes Hannah Solow as Gertie Cummings, Patrick Clanton as Mike, Ugo Chukwu as Cord Elam, Mitch Tebo as Andrew Carnes, and Gabrielle Hamilton as the Lead Dancer. Gillian Hassert, Cameron Anika Hill, Hunter Hoffman, Scott Redmond, Gwynne Wood, and Jordan Wynn round out the ensemble cast as understudies.

“Every element of this production looks, sounds, and feels like America today–and we’re delighted to announce a cast of remarkable storytellers that represent the rich, diverse community of our country,” added Price.
